H I T H E R E !
Thanks for visiting our Indie GoGo campaign! We're a group of university students on the Gold Coast making our final graduation film, which is only possible if we get your help! Our crew is from all around the globe, whom came together to share our passion in film at Bond University, where we've teamed up to make our graduating film. Bond University graduating films are renowned around the Gold Coast and QLD and recognised by industry professionals. The films are a great opportunity and are screened in early December at the university's Centre Screen Awards night, attended by lecturers, crew, cast and industry professionals. This is our chance to make it into the industry. Happy Anniversary is a film for all you lovers out there - wherever you've been dumped, you are the dumper or you just have an awkward love story! Help us bring poor Edgar's awkward break up to the screen. Read on to find out more.

Two days away from his second anniversary with his girlfriend Lulu, Edgar Marcel has some big plans in store. That was before she broke up with him at the restaurant he works at. She’s fallen for another man, Jep Casey, with more style than brains and a sports car parked out front. To add insult to injury, they are having dinner at the same place Edgar works, the same night she broke up with him. Hurt and humiliated, acting professional becomes a chore. While taking their order, Edgar begins insulting Jep about his stupidity, his physique and his manhood. The conversation between the three descends into petty insults, leaving Edgar outwitted by Jep!
As the night wears on, Edgar become more and more frustrated as Lulu and Jep’s displays of intimacy. However, it finally comes to the point where Edgar must accept that there is nothing he can do about the new romance. That is until he is given the opportunity to take revenge in an unusual way…
H O W Y O U C A N H E L PWe have the gear, we have the crew, we have the actors - seems like everything, right? But not quite! We need locations, production design, a stunt coordinator, an animal wrangler! We are currently working with a very small budget, and we need all the help we can get in order to bring our graduation film to life. No matter how big or small, every donation counts! We can't do this without the help of you guys.
Not able to donate? We would be extremely grateful if you would be able to spread the word about our film! Through word of mouth, Facebook or email, you are helping us greatly!
